So I know it’s been a minute since I’ve written anything, and for that I sincerely apologize! It was not intention, but sometimes when self growth is happening, one needs to take a breather and reevaluate.
Well I am back and better than ever!
I am completely over my ex, and I am navigating the dating pool again! LOL I channel my inner Dory… Just keep swimming…. No worries, I got some stories to tell you!
I am at the moment a whole 8 lbs. lighter and counting!
Most importantly, I am learning and understanding how our American capitalist system works.
When I say this, I don’t mean, just understanding how the rich stay rich and the poor stay poor. I mean all of it, with special interest in the African-American portion of the game.
It absolutely astonishes me to see that my family (because like it or not we are one family) has built this country but own such a small percentage of it. Our black dollar is used to enrich our ethnic groups and does not serve our own community. Don’t get me wrong, I am just as guilty as the next person. In my neighborhood, the only business that are black owned are a few car shops and soul food restaurants. Every time I get paid, I give my dollars to everyone else. The groceries I buy, the gas I put in my car, the entertainment I enjoy never touch our community. It’s a shame, but at the moment I have no other resources.
I also have been understanding the fundamentals of how one can gain wealth and hold onto it.
Remember a few months ago when I wrote about ditching this 9-5 lifestyle and living the life that you want? Well I believe in that more than every! The wealthy DO NOT punch into work everyday, they set up systems to have their money work for them, or they own their own business generating their own revenue. Think about that for a moment… Not only are they free to dictate their time, but they don’t slave away for a couple of buck!
I am not sure bout you, but this is my new life goal. I want to live comfortably, debt free, and by my own rules. I want to have much bigger return on my time when I do work. I want to have my money make more money for me. Lastly I want to take everything I have learned and help my family!
You guys, in 2017, the odds are stacked against the melanin blessed! This is the way the system has always been and it is running the way it was designed. We have to take back some of our power. We have to unity together and fix our families, our communities, our economic standing to break this racist and bias system. We can not wait until other’s take pity on us and finally decide to give up their privilege, because I promise you that is NOT happening!
The last 8 months of my life have shown me that you can come back from wreckage. All of us! We can make changes individually and collectively to better our lives, and give the next generation a better chance of real freedom.
So look out world, I have a great calling now and I am finally ready to rise to my potential! There is nothing more fierce than a black woman on a mission!
